The Office of the City Clerk aims to maintain and preserve the integrity of the City records relating to Common Council, New Albany Sewer Board and the Board of Public Works and Safety documents and actions, ordinances, resolutions, agreements, contracts, deeds and minutes. These records are readily available to the citizens of New Albany, outside agencies, the general public and all other City personnel.
The City Clerk’s Office is often the first point of contact a citizen makes with Municipal Government, either on the phone or over the counter, seeking information about the organization or about other agencies. If the information that is being sought does not involve the City organization, then accurate referrals to other agencies are provided. The City Clerk’s Office can be divided into two main areas of concentration, discussed below.
